Join us in celebrating the opening of Home as Stage, the final installment in our 50th anniversary year exhibition series in which we explore the idea of “home.” Featuring the work of four Philadelphia-based contemporary artists – Emily Carris-Duncan, Kay Healy, Colin Pezzano, and Stacey Lee Webber – complemented by a selection of textile objects on loan to WEM from The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Home as Stage asks visitors to consider Esherick’s home and Studio not only as the set on which the artist’s ambitions played out, but also as a stage that hosted players – often other artists – whose conversation, collaboration, and connection made Esherick’s life that much richer and more profound. Join us at the reception (and bring a drink of your choice!) as we hear from the artists in the exhibition and their experience using Esherick’s Studio as a stage for their own creative practices!
This is a free online event; advance reservations are required.
We look forward to seeing you there!
